Waterman's has a wide variety of good food at a decent price, but the orange crushes are what kept me coming back! The outdoor seating is right on the beach and the servers were friendly. I had the crab cake ripper and key lime pie, both of which were awesome, and a friend enjoyed her burger. I will definitely return... More

Waterman's is your typical by the water with trendy food type place. The typical crowd was diverse and I saw some families. The place was nice and I suggest sitting outside for a better experience. I had the fish tacos and they were really good. I suggest making reservations because the place gets busy. They do have valet parking, but... More

The food was fantastic and the only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because it is a little pricey. You are right on the beach though so anything good will be pricey. It is a little, casual place with an ocean view both from inside and outside. The wait staff, hostesses and bartenders were very friendly. It... More

We went here on our first night at Virginia Beach. We had to wait 30 minutes or so for a table; but luckily they send you a text alert when your table is ready, so we explored the boardwalk while we waited. Service was great for the place being packed on a saturday night. Our waitress was very friendly, as... More

The food was okay. It was a bit pricey for no more than we got. It didn't seem like much of a family dining restaurant. It was very loud inside. In their defense though, there was a Hunter Hayes concert on the beach just outside too. That brought out the likes of girls siting on their guy's lap grinding though,... More

We visit Waterman's every visit to the beach. The seafood is excellent. We have never had a bad meal. Wait can be a bit at peak hours. Love the variations on the Orange Crush. Wait staff is good to excellent.

The food was fantastic. Our appetizer was scallops,wrapped in bacon. We could have licked the plate. Even the kids meal(chicken) was delicious. Highlight of our vacation!

Went there for first time for a business dinner. No aspect of restaurant was a disappointment. I also learned later that they will cook your fresh catches as well.

This is a fun place to eat and the food is delish!! Also, I have always had great service here. I will say it is a little loud in there, but not to the point it bothers you. We tried the Shrimp Queso Dip this time and loved it! Although, the shrimp didn't add much, the cheese part was good.... More
